ITR 2A Form Notified to Simplify Process of Filing IT Return


  1. i was reading on net that – person earning exempted income above 5000 cannot file ITR1, does it mean that Salary person earning exempted income above 5000 (ie. if HRA and other allowances are above 5000, which are exempt U/S 10) will file ITR2

      • still waiting for exact conclusion.. have inquired a lot and found both opinions in favor of itr 1 & 2. some are saying to be on safe side u can file 2. but i am still waiting for some good ans.

      • Is it sure that itr2 has to be filed if we have exempted incoe under section 10 around 50k? Also in itr2 excel utility I am not able to fill email address and mobile number(macros are enabled). How can I fill that?

    • You are required to fill ITR1 only. Exempt income is this case refers to Dividend Income etc, not the Salary Income component of HRA etc.

    • I also faced the same problem, but could understand, the salary figure will be picked up from TDS-1 table for working tax liability. Strangely, income other than Salary has been picked up from TDS-2 table but not Salary amount. 2014_ITR2PRI.xls extracted from zipped Tr2 is also provided with system of generating XML file. But that also did not function. ITR2.xls is another excel form available for download and that has correctly assesses tax liability and outstanding tax has been paid as self assessment accordingly, but there is no facility for generating of XML file and therefore can not be uploaded against my PAN account. It appears upload is feasible only for ‘XML’ file. But this ‘xls’ file displays proper acknowledgement (TR5) file. What can be the remedy ? I can only send the Tr5 displayed duly signed if ‘XML’ file does not generate, ‘’

  13. I am filing my ITR form 2 in the java utility and here is my question with respect to filing the ITR2 form with interest income of my minor child.
    My SB interest – Rs. A < 2500
    My FD interest – Rs. B < 1500
    My Son's SB interest – Rs. C < 200
    My Son's FD interest – Rs. D. < 3200

    My Questions: 1) What amount should be filled in Schedule OS 1b (Interest Gross)?
    2) What amount should be filled in Schedule VI A .p (80TTA)?
    3) What amount should be filled in Schedule SPI (Income of Specified Person) against my son's name? Should it be a) Rs.D or b) Rs. D+ Rs. C or c) Rs. D+ Rs. C – Rs.1500

    Basic reason for asking above questions is:
    1) No matter what amount I fill for Q3, the tax amount is not getting changed.
    2) Where should I mention the Rs. 1500 deduction (or exemption) allowed for income of minor child.

  14. I am a Pensioner having Other Income as Intt. on FDR,RD, SB, NSC. Deductions under Chapter VIA includes Health Checkup, Mediclaim and Intt. on NSC. For AY14-15, I filed ITR2 on 31st July 2014 calculating I.Tax as per Form16 and Statements of other income and Capital Gains/Losses. Now my empoyer traced mistake in Form-16 and advises me that the relief under 80D is Rs.5000/- maximum under Health check up which they had taken at the full amount of Rs.7,000/- Hospital Bills. I downloaded ITR-V but did not despatch it after receiving the intimation over phone from my employer. I had deposited Self-Assessed Tax on 26th July 2014 which exceeded total tax payable by over Rs.900/-. Now I want to submit Revised ITR-2. I am using ITR2 software provided by I.Tax Deptt. At the end of recalculation the software is charging penal intt for delayed submission of return under Section 139A. There is no place on the software to select Original Return or Revised Return. Pls advise me what should I do.

    • Hello Bisweshwar Ghosh, Yes you are right there are no option in ITR-2 for revised returns or rectify returns. Anyway don’t worry, Income Tax department has setup the options in its online portal. When you will login to your account to file ITR-2 again then it will tell you that you have already filed ITR-2. So you have to file revised return or cancel it. You can then tick the option to file revised return. It will solve your problem. Hope you will satisfy by it. If not then ask me again, I will look into again. Thanks

  15. Income from other source (i,e, RD,FD, SB ) is to show in break-up figure or I have to show total of interest accured in the ITR-2 (Salaried Individual case)?
